Mind Vector is a cloud-based mind mapping and idea management solution for businesses of all sizes. It offers idea mapping, idea ranking, brainstorming, activity dashboards and collaboration functionalities within a suite. Android and iOS apps available.

Users can create mind maps by adding nodes to an idea in a hierarchical format. The map starts with a root node and progresses with connected sibling and child nodes. Users can also add images, URLs and notes to the nodes, and node colors can be customized.

Maps can be shared with team members using AirDrop and via email. If needed, users can also export mind maps as PDF and .CSV files. Mind Vector’s “Visualizer Mode” provides users with a visual representation of maps by arranging the nodes radially. The product also features a “Center Map” mode, which resizes the maps and places the root node at the center.

Pricing is per month.

The app is wonderful, it helps to focus the mind and is good way to visualize complex topics

It has been tremendously helpful in my field of work which is writing, it allows me to arrange a flow type chart so that I can organize the various subjects that I'm writing about. It is an extremely useful tool that allows you to arrange a myriad of different subjects and sorted by where each one relates to the other. an invaluable tool for anyone who works with a complex set of variables.

Pros

I like the way it looks and I like that you are able to arrange your grids in a way that makes sense to you. I like the colors and the options available to customize it, I also like that you can label each bubble and assign whether the bubble is subordinate to equal to the originating bubble.

Cons

I wish that it would allow you to assign more than one main topic bubble, instead of having to begin a new chart.

Was able to create a full content map within 1/2 hour...only limited by my typing & clicking speed

Pros

I love that it's so easy to change appearance or add icons right from the same menu. The themes make it so easy to delineate clear patterns and level distinctions.

Cons

I haven't found any major dealbreakers yet, but I'll come back and update when I find something. I'm interested in a mind map that can convert to kanban, but I might be asking for too much.

I recommend the Mind Vector Software both free and paid versions

Ease of mapping out ideas.

Pros

Easy of use. Up and Running in minutes. Easy to switch down path groups over to other nodes easily.

Cons

Have not found any major problems. You do need to remember to check the color codes for each node. I would like a way that you could set a default for each level of nodes.

Abandoned software for another product when I couldn't figure out how to do what I needed to do.

Some ideas about how to organize material using mind maps.

Pros

I like organizing using mind maps. I found mind vector to be a great brainstorming format with easy to use maneuvering.

Cons

Was hard for me to figure out, mostly with formatting. I wanted cleaner lines for and I didn't know how to make that happen.

I have had a great experience. I loved the mind mapping you can do with ease. It is very easy to use

I can see what all is connected and what is going on outside my brain

Pros

I liked how simple the software is to use. I can use it on all of my devices that I own. It also keeps me organized.

Cons

Sometimes the can be a little distracting seeing all of what is going on in your mind Map. Maybe an easier way to see it all.

Mind Vector has made my life as a web designer so much easier

Pros

Mind Vector has made my web design jobs a lot easier. I am able to use Mind Vector for many things from developing a website, giving the website structure by site mapping, developing product and developing a whole business. I like that it is easy to use, very easy to learn, and love that I am able to use it almost anywhere because of I can save anything to the cloud. The free version works perfectly fine for me, although it does limit you from some features, but it is still a great app. I am able to organize my ideas.

Cons

I don't think I've found any cons about the software. I like it very much, even with limitations it gives you when using the free version.

The software was perfect for revision for university exams.

Passed my university exams

Pros

It's relatively easy to use. Additionally the colour coding makes it so much easier to revise from.

Cons

Some features need upgrading like the adding new tabs component that could be a lot more efficient with a shortcut like shift-n

It was just what I needed. Absolutely perfect.

Pros

Ease of use
Able to share as a photo or a pdf.
Storage on the app so you can go back to it anytime to add to it or modify it

Cons

Not enough designs or colors. You can't be as creative as you want to be with them. Sometimes it makes mind maps stand out to you when they differ in design.

Mind Vector is seamless and efficient, oozing out endless ideas from my brain

easy to use

Pros

its web based and therefore easily accessible from my different devices ranging from apple to android and windows.

its also very intuitive and easy to use.

i also like the dashboard, which is very easy to have an overview.

Cons

since its web-based, i will always need to connected online to create and make changes to my maps.

I also don't have a local directory to temporary upload and download my maps in the case there are no internet connections.

Easy to use creating a mind map by brainstorming for a beginner.

Pros

It can use by only famous internet browsers, with no significant software installation. Functions are not enough but it is useful for users has several environments.

Cons

It is a little bit awkward to handle and some function, especially nodes operation, is not working well.

Good but limited

Pros

Easy to use . I thought the easy of use was nice the reason I say that is that it was simple. Not simple child like but simple in a way that it's straight forward. I find that if I think a button to add something should be at a certain location and that it should do a certain thing and when it is there and when it does what I thought then that is almost perfect software the difference being not only do I want it predictable but I want it smart.

Cons

Was not much variety also I think it neeed problem solving templates like logical orders to things. Like you always do this and then that in certain circumstances. For example to do a presentation you will need to gather info then sort and removed then categorize then blah blah blah but that can be pulled into the mind map all at once...all those steps so once you've established that as a something your going to do , can you imagine how many different things we do that have predetermined steps and by dragging two side by side we would easily , visually see how they would related or cancel each other or show redundancy...hey shouldn't I get royalties for this one?

The experience has been as expected, which is to say good.

Pros

Ease of use and intuitive nature of building a mindmap. There are also good options to be able to build a good mindmap.

Cons

One cannot build more than one sentence in one node. One can only build long sentences. We want to be able to out up a list in a node.

Easy to use and create a mind map without any hassles.

I was able to create a mind map and therefore was able to better organise my thoughts, by being able to visualise/see the connections.

Pros

I liked the fact that it was easy to use. When I wanted to draw a mind map, the options to add new nodes was straight forward.

Cons

To access all the features I needed to pay. Good software, but not every aspect of it is free to use. Also I need to enable Flash when using it on a computer.

Easy

Mind mapping helps capture and reorganise information

Pros

Logical and simple to lay out. Intuitive operation. Great features to view the mind maps in different formats. Can export data to other software. Layout is fun and engaging with different layout colour options

Cons

No list option is about the most frustrating con. It would be great to translate the map intuitively into lists to use as project plans, etc.

Super difficult to use

Pros

I like the concept of it but that's honest to go about it. The colors were cool, too, I guess.

Cons

How hard it was to use and how much work I lost. There were many days when I would have to start all over from the beginning.

The program worked well for creating mind maps for students

Worked great with my student I tutored in creating a story minimap.

Pros

Great for setting up basic mind maps with different ways of viewing the maps. Lets you spread the bubbles whichever way is more convenient. You can insert comments and photos into the maps as well.

Cons

Doesnt do very well with personalization, you can't choose the colors of your bubbles. That's my only complaint aside from potentially being able to add comments to another map as a different user.
